Bremen is Germany’s 10th-largest city, but the relaxed residents and historic streets give this city a relaxed personality. The historic side of Bremen centers around the Marktplatz, home to the city’s most impressive architecture like the Town Hall, Bremen Cathedral, and the Schütting. Here, visitors can also see a statue of Roland, the protector of the city, and the Town Musicians of Bremen, a bronze statue depicting the famous fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. Stroll the Böttcherstraße, a historic street in the center packed with redbrick bars, restaurants, shops, and even art workshops.
Bremen sits on the banks of the River Weser, so visitors should certainly walk down the famous riverside promenade known as the Schlachte, where you can stop for a drink at a beer garden, eat some local food at a fantastic restaurant, and even hop on a riverboat for a serene tour of waterfront Bremen. Take in the beauty of nature at the Rhododendron-Park Bremen, a sprawling botanical garden full of colorful rhododendrons and azaleas that is sure to have a calming effect.
